I'm just reading these responses about an email address at my former employer. I feel my situation is different for the following reason: they forced me to use an email address with their domain name and give up mine. AS a loan officer, I was not a regular type employee. I brought my own "book of business" and had to get all new clients on my own. THey helped with NOTHING. They should not now be able to use that, they should deactivate it.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: At willJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: nope

I was recently hired for a specific job in a specific

I was recently hired for a specific job in a specific location. At the very start of the hiring process, I disclosed that my boyfriend already works for the company I was applying for and he worked at the same location. I was still offered the job. I turned in my resignation at my previous job. On my last day at my previous job, my new manager called to tell me that I was not going to be working at the location originally designated because HR did not want my boyfriend and I to be in the same building. He is a surgeon and I am an occupational therapist with specific credentials that assist his patients. The purpose of the move was so that I could treat his patients again. The company also employs several other couples who work in the same department with no issue. For some reason we have been pigeonholed and now I have forfeited my previous job for a job I never would have signed on for. What are my options?

I accepted early retirement from my employer. I was the told I was not really eligible because I had been part time. Since they had already accepted my paper work they "talked with legal and thought it the right thing to do to grant the ERI". We agreed to biweekly pay checks until the total agreed on was fulfilled. The e-mail statement I have said the amount agreed on minus taxes. They are also deducting the HSA amount I was taking out each pay prior to ERI. Is this legal?

I kind of feel like they are trying to make me feel guilty not to take leave or some for discouragement. Do I have to accept this transfer or loose the FMLA ?
